We’re dreaming of spring with this work by Alma Thomas. Thomas taught visual art in DC Public Schools for 35 years. As one of two African-American members of the Washington Color School, the artist investigated the use of solid color in her abstract paintings. She used nature and music for inspiration until her death in 1978 at age 87.
